Ms. Berg is an author that I pick up automatically. She always has qirky characters, fun storylines, and great chemistry between the main characters. This story was no different except...this time around things are a little hotter, and a little darker. These changes only show that Ms. Berg is a whole lot more talented in weaving a story that will have the reader glued to the pages.
Angel Devlin is a "once bitten, twice shy" P.I. for the wealthy Palm Beach society crowd. She drives a red Jag, and lives above a dog grooming establishment. Oh she also wears a stiletto, Jimmy Choos, and nice clothes. She also has an ex-husband named Dagger Zane who took her to the cleaners when she finally divorced him. As if this was all not enough she is planning a gala ball for an Alzheimer's fundraiser (her mother has this disease) and has talked a rather reclusive man to host it at his estate. Why is this a problem? She has to keep him happy and march to his tune. That shouldn't be a problem but it becomes on once she appears on the radarscreen of Tom Donovan. Tom is big, bad, handsome and trouble! Of course when you add Dagger, and a secret that Tom wants to solve to the mix you have the making for a great story.
Tom has a dark past and a mystery he has to solve. His father was acused of stealing a statue, and attacking the wife of his best friend. Of course he was killed during the commission of these crimes. Tom is out to prove that his father had not stolen anything, or attacked anyone. This leads him to his godfather the one person Angel has to dance to. He thinks he can use Angel to get to his godfather. What he doesn't expect is falling for the sexy Angel. Now he has to make a choice. Clear his father's name and find out the truth about what took place the night his father died. Or let the past lay and find love with Angel.
This was a very fast read full of great characters, humor, and great chemistry between Angel and Tom. The storyline regarding Tom's past was very entertaining and the mystery was solved at the end of the story. This was a very good ending. Ms. Berg delivers on all counts with her latest effort. I highly recommend Ms. Berg for a great entertaining read!
